Auto execute a rom?? Disable exiting the game?

Post by gamefixer » Mon Sep 06, 2021 2:52 pm

Hey guys!

Yesterday I unboxed my ARpiCADE and went to figuring out how to get Cliff Hanger running. Well, I did that and now I have 2 questions left.

A) Is there a way to auto-execute Cliff Hanger upon power up?
B) is there a way to disable the "press and hold 1p/2p to exit) function in Daphne?

Thanks everyone!

You can do both things in the file /boot/run.sh by disabling the line that launches the hotkeys system and adding a line launching Daphne with the game you want (follow the example in the file).

Back the run.sh file up first just in case. Don't edit it with Windows built in text editor, if you're on WIndows get Notepad++ (it's free and won't break your Linux files for you).
